How would i know weather i've demage the lens/camera

Hi all,

I am new in here, and i would like to ask you:

Yesterday i got my new Tamron 70-300 DI-LD macro. and somehow after i attached it to the camera body, which is also new, i accidently pushed in the focus ring while the camera was on AF mode.

How would i know if i have damaged the lense/the camera?

Thanks allot,

Dror

Does it continue to work in Autofocus mode? If so, you didn't damage it.

It usually takes more than one mistake to damage a lens this way.

If you turned the focus ring while the camera was in AF (not MF) mode, then you probably had some resistance from the motor and it probably made a whirry sound. And it isn't likely to cause damage unless you do it quite often.

Thanks very much for the quick answer!

Yes, it does continue to work in Autofocus mode.

It is quit a relieve for me knowing that...

I have this lens, I find it's a little finnicky going on and off. I have to be careful to grip it just so to make sure I don't accidentally give it a twist.
